“Accept the things we cannot change whilst believing we can overcome our limitations”
The Ashtanga Primary series is “Yoga Chikitsa” or Yoga Therapy. It was developed in Mysore, South India and brought to the west by the Guru Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga is an intelligently sequenced yoga system that lengthens and tones muscles and increases mobility of the joints. It also creates exceptional core strength and the ujjayi breath practised in class energises you yet soothes your nervous system.
I have developed this class to allow you to enjoy the dynamic and strong practice of Ashtanga yoga but working at a slower pace. Perhaps you are starting yoga for the first time in your later years? Maybe you are managing a health condition, have a back issue, you lack strength or feel that you are exceptionally stiff?
This class will be a warm and welcoming space for you to build your confidence and develop your own personal yoga practice at your own pace.
In Mysore, South India where Ashtanga originates the student is taught on a one to one basis but in a group setting. Everyone is taught the same postures but as we are all so different we are all taught in a slightly different way. Ashtanga is a set sequence so over time you start to remember the sequence yourself.
This slower pace of learning allows those who have injuries, weaknesses or a health issue to work at their own pace.
It is not a gentle stretching/relaxation class. We will work hard to develop strength, resilience and mobility in the body whilst we cultivate self- confidence, focus and steadiness of mind. A bit about your teacher: I have been teaching yoga for over 8 years and I have studied extensively with the Ashtanga yoga Guru in Mysore, South India. I also practice Thai Yoga Massage, AKA Lazy man’s yoga, which is a Buddhist practice of Loving Kindness. I apply this knowledge to my teaching. I love teaching Ashtanga and sharing something that has inspired me to live life to the full!
Everyone coming to class will be expected to complete a short health questionnaire. Please check with your Dr or another health professional before signing up to the class.
To quote the Ashtanga guru “ Everyone can do Ashtanga yoga, sick person, old person, young person, very old person, One who is sick – he will gain health. One who doesn’t have strength – he will gain strength. The only person who can’t practice is the lazy man. The lazy man always has excuses.’
